Welcome

Mt. Vernon is an alternative school with the capacity to serve ninety 6th through 8th grade mild to moderate at-risk students. Approximately 15 percent of these are identified as special education students receiving additional consultative and resource services.

Our mission is to provide all students an opportunity to succeed in character development and academics while becoming more responsible and productive citizens equipped for future challenges.

There are three programs on the Mt. Vernon campus that are each designed to address a variety of student needs.  The Mt. Vernon Middle School program for at-risk middle school students, the Boosters acceleration program, and the Bridges program for Kindergarten through 5th grade.
